a convention where do you start, right? >> tuesday night michelle obama knocks it out of the park and absolutely electrifies the crowd. wednesday it gets better and by wednesday morning, the people were just pumped. >> stephanie: yeah, it's not just that we have the policies -- that are better for women, we presented i don't know how many amazing awesome women. that's the best thing you can do is show what awesome women are like including jennifer grandholm. let's hear line of the night. >> now sure sure mitt romney loves our lakes and our trees. he loves our car so much they even had their own elevator.

[ applause ] >> it takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did. >> reporter: he went on, addressing welfare reform and the economy. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president re-election was actually pretty simple. pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. >> reporter: he acknowledged the economy is still in recovery. but he asks -- >> are we better off than we were when he took office? >> reporter: president clinton did work in a plug or two for his own economic performance in the '90s. >> people ask me all the time how we got our budgets passed. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always bring a one-word answer. ar
